Open Quote This is my daughter's second year at this school. It is an outstanding school. It is a small Title 1 school, which means it has very particular regulations that it must follow in order to be eligible for Title 1 funds that it very much needs. The staff at Myrtlewood are amazing, they are friendly, helpful and just generally easy to get along with. There has been some drama within the last year, regarding the Parent Involvement Committee, while unfortunate, there is little that can be done about it, as the parent refuses to see their errors, and are unwilling to follow the guidelines set forth by our administration regarding the safety of our students. I fully stand by this administration and the hard decisions that have had to be made. This is a fun school that puts learning first! If you want a Principal that will protect your children, like a "Mama Bear" while they are in her care, this is the school for you! The teachers here on a whole are outstanding, there are always a couple that we wish would do something differently, but you will see that in any school. "PTA" has fees, which is why we don't have one, our Principal believes parents shouldn't have to pay to help. ~DL Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
